to gain from murdoch's empire crumbling the b.b.c. could retake t.v. territory lost to b. sky b. and the labor party which was wounded by years of relentless attacks by murdoch papers can finally take revenge but where will all this lead. now. do you. see. that we should be. producing. all. this. you know. that would suit the government just fine the british press is famous for it shop teeth and no holds barred doggedness particularly where its own government is concerned prime minister david cameron has all but shut down the press complaints commission and already talks of statutory controls to govern print
journalists back in springfield mr burns's thwarted as the townspeople put up their own newspaper and he's almost right we. can truly the media because of rupert murdoch he is one beautiful man murdoch found as did mr burns that you just can't buy all the newspapers those outside his control have been gunning for him think it is and this time they may have succeeded just as he looks set to consolidate control over a lot section of the u.k.'s media markets the drugs being pulled out from under him and it's all over the hidden scandal now revealed that the police have known about it for years nor ever its own. art has been hearing how the culture of control by the murder got out of hand brian dr who runs a t.v. network for social activists there are pair. rose with some nations wider imperial
ambitions. you can make an analogy i think on an international scale between what happens in take over so the united states and britain took over iraq and who do they bring the power who they employ they employ close loans and i think that same thing has happened in the tabloids where you have a man's power and again some murdoch and a few of the other barons and who they hire what type of boat they hire not painting every journalist with that brush of thuggery but certainly if you look at murdoch whether it's on television where you've got paid burma with sas and some like o'reilly and hannity and united states i don't know about in britain. it's a whole culture of power and control and deception for an agenda and that agenda i think is the agenda. ours both in britain and the united states. and we've
more of a reaction and analysis on the. dot com here's what else we've lined up for you today. names floated the idea of putting the discovery of why the russian he ams been given the bond treatment on billboards in moscow also online. the creatures in crisis is a ferret a parrot and a monkey escaped from a siberian circus seemingly because the bad sour weather is getting them down more on the ferry friends cluster at r.t. dot com. drastic spending cuts are on the way in italy as parliament desperately tries to fan off a spiraling debt crisis it all bodes badly for the euro italy's finance minister even compare the currencies troubles to the titanic but as financial writer patrick
young told us the government may find itself in conflict with a public that's dead set against cuts. there will be one significant difference between the people who take to the streets between greece and italy and others that greece at least thank goodness the taxi drivers don't go on strike where is nuclei expected almost everybody is going to end up on strike and it's going to be absolutely chaotic the only way they can slip this through is perhaps because we do have this long lead in time until the cuts really start to make an impact in two thousand and thirteen but i think the problem is in the meantime a large amount of the sort of the leftist opposition in italy for see the fact that silvio berlusconi due to many of the reasons most of which are outside of the direct for school reason are involved i mean he's a wounded animal at this point in time and in some ways i think that he's going to be finding it very difficult to hold his government together there are big problems in western europe behave them to be here definitely to the east everyone not so
fortunately expect further to the prices because the epidemic the contagion seems to be spreading and we have no political leadership seeming to do with it. and in today's you know about his gas discussed why the ears leadership is so adamant about saving the euro and cost here's some of what's coming up at eleven thirty g.m.t. . let greece go bankrupt it would be good for greece it would be good for the europe it'd be good for the world if greece went bankrupt and rose to the pay their bills and stop a lie then you would have everybody would know it's a strong sound currency based on a strong sound economy while i'm out and go bankrupt listen in in america we've had . cities go bankrupt we've had counties go bankrupt it didn't in the united states and it didn't in the us tell you why because of the four hundred billion dollars of debt that greece has fifty percent is held by german and french banks and those countries don't want to take
a second in the financial markets it's that simple. and. there are clear reflections on the other side of the atlantic to president obama has given an unyielding u.s. congress thirty six hours to raise the country's debt ceiling deadlocks already spurred two of the three major credit rating agencies to threaten downgrading america's triple a status but investment alice maxwell tells r.t. that washington's addiction to dad is clouding both sides appetite for real solution. america's been running on debt for years this is a disaster in the making and i would liken this situation here to a cancerous tumor inside a body there's no better time to cut the cancerous tumor out quickly as you possibly care that the u.s. government has been running on debt for many many years and we've been raising the
budget the total debt ceiling for many many years as a budget issue and we've successfully deals struck it has become the political nor in the united states that whatever party is in the white house. has to ask to raise the debt ceiling it's always been raised in the past the party that's not in the white house that's out of power screams and yells for three or four days at most usually about how the government spending too much and should live within its means the debt ceiling demand gets raised and it's business as usual that's been the case for thirty years so we have one side in the congress right now that's the cited no increase in revenue is acceptable other side decided that not raising revenue is unacceptable and so we've reached an embarrassing impasse that has dragged on for weeks longer than it should and is the reason that we're going to see the growing chorus of foreign and domestic voices urging congress and the white house to stop riling already strained global markets with a political impasse despite treaties and agreements to curb the spread of nuclear
weapons governments keep investing in perfecting their arsenals and for some activists the danger will remain for as long as people remain apophatic later today our special report tells the story of citizen crusaders have hoped to sound a wake up call for countries refusing to relinquish nuclear weapons. with the end of the war and the going away of the so. many people thought that nuclear weapons disappeared. the risk is not zero that something might be going off by mistake especially with nuclear weapons on hair trigger alert. to use it as a threat. as an extra. you know if you keep spending a trillion dollars a year on weapons of venture you're going to blow everybody up you know people are dying from these weapons but until we actually see if people don't wake up through what will be. that represents all of the firepower of the second
world war this second sound is the equivalent firepower of the world's nuclear arsenal today. arrest warrants have been issued for the captains of two vessels which passed by the sunken volga river cruise ship without stopping to help survivors they will reportedly face negligence charges it comes just a day after two people linked to the disaster were arrested. the head of the for around which rented out the vessel and the registrar who certified the ship are suspected of violating safety regulations resulting in the deaths of severely overloaded cruiser went down on sunday in russia's republic of tatarstan killing at least one hundred fourteen people including twenty seven children the sunken ship
is to be broad's to the surface within the next few days already spoke to the captain of a vessel which came to eight of the survivors. because we were nearing the site we began to figure out how many people there were in the water hold it was hard to do because there was a lot of raw. floating around as well it was very hard to pick out individual people from among the florida debris some people were in dreadful condition mean you were injured or all over their skin because when the ship sank the fuel oil came up to the surface and spread everywhere and covered the people that made the rescue even harder because the oil made the victims greasy and hard to get a hold to pull them on board sheen children and that condition that was particularly heart breaking. the full interview with the captain many in the country are considered heroes online right now dot com. the u.s. may want to be seen as the world's human rights advocate but
a helmet faces growing accusations of hypocrisy thousands of professional torturers have reportedly been trained over the past sixty years was department of defense approval at a scale in ford found out it's ready to export its entering expertise. it's been thirty years since colombian soldiers kidnapped be starved and electroshock tech there are all for having a quote subversive book. with the memories he lives every day people have survived torture i'm very lucky to be able to tell the story. people get told to for. they get shot and kill many have been appear hector says the colombian soldiers who tortured him and later killed his brother. were trained right here on american soil at the school of the americas and for benning georgia army major joyce of blair was an instructor there i was very much in favor
of the school of the americas during the cold war era but major blair says he was horrified with what his former students did with their anti-communist training in their own country the classified. army. the words. next door. assassinate. commonly. called waits for. graduates from the school of the americas have been implicated in massacres and torture throughout the hemisphere of the more than sixty thousand soldiers and police to have graduated ten thousand of them have been colombia it has been the largest user of the school of the americas i don't think it's an accident. abuser of human rights in that with some hemisphere the eighth amendment to the us constitution forbids torture and other forms of cruel and unusual punishment as does the geneva convention but they did happen there's no question
that our country gage and torture and so taught others how to do it we also rendered people we also sent people to prisons in other countries where they were in fact torture there although congress demanded more oversight of military training programs an internal investigation by the government accountability office showed that school of the americas manuals advocated using quote torture truth serum blackmail and execution the pentagon said it didn't know what the manuals contained because it staff advisors assigned to review them didn't speak spanish united nations special repertoire for torture one mendez himself a survivor of torture says a lack of transparency in the u.s. led to further abuse in the eighty's unfortunately. the military police say it was restored and after that it's been difficult to document to what extent that includes teaching. techniques that are prohibited by law by international law it's a legacy that sharply contrast with u.s.
rhetoric about respect for human rights abroad torture survivors and religious leaders in washington d.c. have come together to demand a full commission of inquiry into what they describe as torture practiced or enabled by the united states including in its own prisons like one time obey and by the cia when president bush sends. and he waterboard and he would do it again. and he said damn right that he had ordered it. so you know it's a very serious problem for the spirit so we're country as the myth of how many prisoners were tortured by the united states are hard to find but survivors like hector's say the numbers don't tell the full story when someone gets torture not only the person who. has to deal with the big wouldn't because of those on the torture is also someone who has to be humanized themselves in order through the human eyes and all of human beings but a society that supports torture is going to pay a price the price as well killing ford r. t. washington d.c. . as the u.s.
expands its antiterrorist now work abroad there are now reports of secret prisons in somalia sights officially belong to local security forces but are run and paid for by the cia journalist jeremy scahill has as he has visited the prisons adding that america's mainstream media makes it hard to report on what's really going on there. inside this dungeon prison there are no windows there's no sunlight there's a bedbug infestation according to prisoners who've been there mosquitoes all over the place the air is thick and disgusting some prisoners are said to be losing their minds there are also reports from prisoners that there were very young boys inside of the prison some people have been held for eighteen months without charge without access to lawyers without access to the red cross in fact the red cross told me that they were not aware of the prison and that they have never been given access to it i know for a fact that journalists from several major american news outlets were aware of
these facilities in mogadishu and it's for those networks to answer why they've never reported on it both c.n.n. and a.b.c. have allowed their facilities their media outlets to be used as conveyer belts for the spin of the cia and. it's the job of the cia and they do it well but the job of major media outlets should not be to be a conveyor belt for the propaganda of u.s. intelligence agencies so i would leave those those questions for other media outlets as to why they're not reporting on this very serious life and death issue that has to do very much with the rule of law in this country and whether or not there's been any change when it comes to respect of international human rights laws and standards. so take a look at some other stories from around the world in a pentagon has admitted suffering one of its largest ever happier attacks with thousands of sensitive fans. deputy defense secretary william lynn says all the data was taken in a single intrusion in march officials blame an unspecified foreign government and

a traditional store of value gold is being driven by concerns over the u.s. debt situation and the prospect the federal reserve will print yet more dollars models advancing years later eighty years capital believes there's no limit to the current rally it did look like a few weeks ago that the price of gold was going to come in lower but when you're starting to see increased eurozone concerns increased inflationary concerns the prospect of more quantitative easing more stimulus spending from the from the federal reserve we thought that that finished at the end of june now in the last couple of days or so there's an increased likelihood that the federal reserve could start to print more money and that is going to go into areas it's going to go to gold and into equities are most likely gold at the moment so obviously sixteen hundred dollars would be an obvious level for gold to hit and then you start to see some profit being taken off the table but then you could push through that and there's no ceiling you could carry on going to seven hundred eighteen hundred
